Go for it! That said, I don't want to rush a cool project.
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

Then again you're pretty much there already ! Might as well put your head down and do the last bits. I'd finish one wing and put a big juicy roundel on it to get motivated to finish the rest  :thumbsup:

Looking good, an uncanny resemblance to my Bristol Type 170 Sea Moose AEW. Bought the Revell kit, another AEW to build.

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement so far  ;D The grey is done, the red is done.

Now all I need to do is ....

paint and fit the undercarriage

fit the forward piece of the hull (left off so far because I presume some lead will be involved - with the massive tail there's no way this won't naturally be a tail-sitter!)

fit any aerials, lumps and bumps etc

Apply any relevant kit-supplied decals (anyone want some "Securite Civile" decals for a future fire-bomber project ?  ;) )

Apply the Royal Navy markings and the squadron markings...already chosen, hopefully they'll complement the paint scheme  :-\ :lol:

Probably spent more time than is healthy painting a Bear's bottom!

Received one yesterday.

And pray tell, what are you planning to do with it ?

Or as they once said on a Meatloaf song ...."What's it gonna be Boy ?! "  ;) ;D

Either go down the AEW route or jet power-turbofans from the A-10 kit. Would make a great gunship.
Always wanted to build a Shackleton water bomber.
